they needed to hear. he would come to the united states and with the u.s. civil rights movement then he brought it home. as a result now, south africa which still has troubles, still has 30% unemployment, which this rainbow nation doesn't exactly exist the way we like to think it does, is now left in -- with the absence of him to look in the hire current and future leaders realizing nobody quite measures up. partly because the goals were different. the ideals are different. the challenges are different. the economy is still struggling. will never see the likes of nelson mandela again. maybe neither should we. perhaps he was a man of his time. the question i guess now especially for all the young people, they call them born free, born after he was no longer president. he was one term as president which was another smart thing. >> one of the few african leaders who stepped down willingly. very few people in that position say, know what, i'm done. i'll move on to something else. >> schieffer: one of the few leaders, i mean you look where they sometimes have to take them out on a gurney kn

because of one man. same way in the united states. it was martin luther king who set the premise of civil rights and made the non violence the essential element, almost a religion. because of him we ended up in the happy place we are now with a peaceful transition and ultimately a black president. >> as you were speaking, f.w. clerk almost on queue put out a statement saying mandela's courage, charm, were an inspiration not only for south africans but the whole world. i believe his example will live on and we'll continue to inspire all to achieve his vision of non racialism, justice, human dignity and equality for all. we shall miss you. we know your spirit and example will be there to guide us to a better south africa. coming up, the obama care story isn't going anywhere. there's other news today. stay with us. farmer: hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer. and our giant idaho potato truck is still missing. so my dog and i we're going to go find it. it's out there somewhere spreading the good word about idaho potatoes and raising money for meals on wheels. but we'd really like our truck back

, but my opinion is that we're talking about a civil rights issue, and my opinion is that outside the school, they are getting a message, the opposite one, the one that i just said about their work and about what the country believes in them because this is about achieving gaps in intercity, low income, african-american, and hispanic, and closing the gap with the white suburban counterparts so telling them the opposite message in the school that they are in to overcome the the message they get outside the house. >> well, separate by equal, illegal, unconstitutional now, and how do these kids, say, 9th grade, and say north phillie, how did they get the message that's wrong? when they walk into a classroom because they have to go, they have to go to school. their parents get them ready for school, they get their clothes together and hopefully they have breakfast. they go to school. what are the signals they get that say you're infear your? that you're not beginning to get anything from this? what's the thing you try to fight as you get into trying to make education work? what's the
